Subject: I like the movie
Entertaining. Gene Austin is not only a decent actor, but I like his songs too. I usually don't write much detail in my reviews (I guess I wouldn't make a good movie critic), but after Pop gets shot at and is found by Gene, a small part of the film got chopped which makes the viewer think Pop died, however, the viewer shortly gets back into full knowledge of what's going on.

"My Blue Heaven," crooner Gene Austin turned Western star by the Alexander brothers. Songs and Saddles, was then road-shown on a personal appearance tour throughout the South. Austin was able to stay in the saddle long enough to warble "I'm Coming Home" and "Rootin' Tootin' Shootin' Man from Texas," to romance leading lady Lynne Barkeley. Austin comes to the aid of an rancher, "Pop" Turner (Walter Wills), who is about to be out of his property by an realtor (Karl Hackett) and a contractor(Charles King). Unbeknownst to Pop, a new highway is projected to run through his land, making said property very valuable. Left for dead, Pop is kept out of sight by daughter Carol (Barkeley) and Austin, who then go after the would-be killers. Nothing to get too excited about, Songs and Saddles proved popular with its intended audience of Austin fans. The uninitiated simply assumed it was Gene Autry, the Alexander brothers were happy to leave well enough alone. Songs and Saddles was photographed in California's High Sierras by cinematographers Robert Cline and Harry Forbes.
